The NCSPCA would like to thank all who participated in making our fifth annual "Fashion for a Passion" show a success! The event, held on Oct. 13, at the Mineville VFW, raised more than $6,000 for our animals. We are especially grateful to the Fashion Corner Bridal and Surries and Sons Tuxedos for sponsoring the stunning dresses and ensembles. You can view pictures from the event at our Facebook site.
We are also proud to announce that the new shelter project is well on its way to completion! After breaking ground on Aug. 15, the foundation has been laid and the walls to our new shelter have been erected. We plan to open our doors by the end of March of 2013. You can read about the development of this new, state-of-the art facility on our website, ncscpa.org. The new shelter will replace the cramped, 40-year old current facility on Lakeshore Ave in Westport.
Our featured pet this week is a gorgeous young Russian Blue/mix cat names Seppo, who recently came in with his brother Grande. This handsome boy is a real charmer, who is very quick to purr and beg for your attention. True to his breed, Seppo's luminous coat is a beautiful solid grey that appears almost blue. Although he has a lot of "teenager" cat antics, Seppo is quick to calm down to some serious cuddling. If you are looking for a feline friend who is playful, intelligent, and sweet, Seppo is the cat for you!
